    That's a beautiful Chay Yan ,Hoanglong.Here's an interesting story connected with the naming and registering of the first Tan Chay Yan.It was registered as you indicated; J van Brero x dearii. Subsequent repeat crosses using the same parents gave completely different results. Later it was revealed that the owner who registered the cross had made a mistake and the actual cross was made with sanderana and not dearii but it had already been been registered as V Tan Chay Yan. And so the cross of J van Brero x sanderana was subsequently registered as V T.M.A.

    Hi Yew. It is early this morning, so if this question doesn't make sense, please forgive me. What does the 'T.M.A.' stand for? Vanda .... " "

    I love the coloring of this vanda bloom. It is like a beautiful sunset.

    Cheers,
    BD

    @ Bruce: The orchid was actuallyregistered as V T.M.A. not an abbreviation as it was registered by the T.M.A. Orchid Nursery in Singapore in the early sixties. Don't ask me what T.M.A. stands for : I don't know and the nursery doesn't exist any more, unfortunately. There were so many crosses made with Josephine van Brero, a semi-terete, and the strap-leaved vandas in the sixties in Malysia that many weren't registered and were simply called Tan Chay Yan as most of them looked like the original.However, there was one notable exception, a cross with V Eisenhower made by breeder in Penang, that was superior in both shape and colour.

    I agree with you concerning the colour, Bruce. In the late fifties, Malaysia's Tan Chay Yan won a Gold Medal at the prestigious Chelsea Flower Show [mentioned somewhere in a previous post] and its salmon coloured flowers with its fabulous substance caused a sensation then. Imagine in the fifties the predominant vanda colours were the mauves, blues , purples, pinks and here was Chay Yan with a colour breakthrough[asccentrums had not been used in hybridising then].No wonder it was the pride of Malaya [as Malaysia was known then]!

    It was an interesting time as the pride of Hawaii then was V Nellie Morley and there was a kind of healthy competition then with Malaya producing Josephine van Brero crosses and Hawaii likewise with V Emma van Deventer crosses.At the height of the craze I had 3 compots of each of the above crosses and grew them all to blooming.

    Sorry for the longwinded rambling. That's the trouble with advancing age!
